A former FIFA-accredited agent claims Manchester United are in line to sign Marco Verratti from PSG.
Vincent Rodriguez tweeted that the Red Devils are “deep in negotiations and at an advanced stages for Fred, Alex Sandro and Diogo Dalot,” as well as that “conversation with [Mino] Raiola have begun regarding Verratti.”
Jose Mourinho wants to upgrade his midfield options, with the deal to sign Shakhtar Donetsk’s Fred entering its final stages, and Bayern Munich’s Arturo Vidal also linked.
Verratti joined PSG from Pescara in 2012, and made 22 Ligue 1 appearances last season. It could take up to £100m to prise him from the French giants.
The Italian midfielder is also wanted by Juventus, who would offer him the chance to play in his home country’s top division for the first time.
Ex-agent Rodriguez regularly provides updates about Man United transfer news via Twitter. Last year, he claimed the club had agreed a deal to take Antoine Griezmann to Old Trafford, which did not come into fruition.
